Can Educational Research be Replaced by Intuition and Experience?

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/KonferenzbandBeitrag in Konferenzband


Teachers have to rely on their intuition and experience because there might not be sufficient empirical research evidence on every pedagogical issue that may come up in the teaching process. Some people even argue that experience is sufficient for effective teaching and that many research findings are self-evident. If this assumption were true, teachers would be able to distinguish right from wrong statements without prior knowledge of relevant research findings. The study described in this paper will show that it is not always safe for teachers to rely (only) on their experience and intuition when it comes to answering pedagogical questions.
